That seems to be the mantra these days. No white sugar, no white potatoes, and no white bread. For me, that’s a tuff one. I could probably do without the white sugar, I don’t eat that much sugar anyway, but I am a bread and potato freak! More than once I have had just a baked potato for lunch and I can’t imagine my life without mashed potatoes. LOL. What I have done is quit eating white bread.
Even when you’re trying to do the right thing, the food manufacturers have their own agenda. Obviously they will do anything to get you to buy their products, including “lie”. They say “whole grain” on the front of the package, but it may be a little whole grain in the middle of a bunch of processed white flour. I had to really hunt to get a truly 100% whole wheat that didn’t have “high fructose corn syrup”, another manufactured poison.
I was over visiting run4change this morning and he had a video up from RunnersWorld . This lady doctor is going through the pantry getting rid of stuff. It was a good video, but I think mostly stuff us dieters already know. They actually have several little short videos on RunnersWorld and I found it pretty interesting, even tho they’re geared more for runners than dieters. I decided this video below would be a little more useful for us.
Update: I don’t know why wordpress won’t let me embed the video, but it won’t, so if you click on the RunnersWorld link it will take you to the videos. There’s a really good one on snacking. You can eat quite a bit of candy for 250-450 calories. Of course the fat is another story. LOL.
